Take in the historical view from Nu'uanu Pali Lookout
Located just off the Pali Highway, the historic site is home of the Battle of Nu'uanu, where King Kamehameha I and his men fought the chief of Oahu’s men, eventually driving nearly 700 warriors off the cliff. Following the bloody battle, the Hawaiian Islands were unified under King Kamehameha’s rule. Today, the nearly 1,000ft cliff overlooking the island’s Windward side is another great lookout without trekking through a tropical rainforest. Hold onto your hats, because this historical scenic elevation is also known for its fierce winds.
